We’re thrilled to be invited back to Hackney by Sutton House.
Sutton House is hosting Sutton House Christmas, a special seasonal event featuring a Christmas market that will run each weekend from Saturday 26th November to Sunday 18th December at the National Trust property in London.
The Tudor manor house in Homerton High Street, Hackney will host a Christmas fair, open Saturday and Sunday each weekend, themed around pantomimes. The unique concept has been created to tie in with Sutton House’s book-themed events in 2016.
Offering a vibrant alternative to the more traditional ‘German style’ Christmas market with a handpicked selection of artisans, artists, fashion and jewellery designers, ceramicists, and card makers, Sutton House aims to attract a mix of boutique shoppers and families looking for a fun day out. The magnificent Tudor house provides the perfect setting for the pantomime themed Christmas event combined with the opportunity to find original and quality Christmas gifts.
Sutton House will be transformed into a winter wonderland with each room representing a different pantomime theme; the rooms will be dressed accordingly and include live action characters. Themes include Jack & The Beanstalk, Dick Whittington, Puss In Boots, Hansel and Gretel, Goldilocks, Snow White, Alice In Wonderland, The Beauty and The Beast, Peter Pan, Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella, Robin Hood, and Wizard Of Oz. The icing on the Christmas cake will be the opportunity for children to meet Santa.
Built in 1535 by prominent courtier of Henry VIII, Sir Ralph Sadleir, the National Trust property, Sutton House retains much of the atmosphere of a Tudor home despite some alterations by later occupants, including a succession of merchants, Huguenot silkweavers, and squatters. Discover oak-panelled rooms, original carved fireplaces and a charming courtyard. Sutton House work hard to build its relationship with the local community and provide excellent learning experiences for all ages.
